Tasting Notes

The fruit was hand harvested between 21 March and 3 April, 2012. Bunches were de-stemmed to retain as many whole berries as possible, after which the parcels were fermented separately in open and upright fermenters with regular, gentle pumpovers or plunging. Fermentation temperatures were kept below 25˚C and lasted 16 days. Following primary fermentation, select parcels were left on skins for up to 21 days before being pressed. The wines from each parcel remained separate during 20 months of maturation in tight-grain French oak, of which 50% was new. The wines were racked every three months to aid clarification. Following the maturation period, the batches were then blended, fined and filtered prior to being bottled in May 2014.
